-The lone god created seven lesser beings known as spenta to serve him. They appear as brilliant lights and are seen at the borders of the empire, acting as protector spirits.

 Neither god or trickster has champions in the way of the Greek pantheon. However, Ahura Mazda did once have a prophet called Zoroaster who walked the Earth a century ago.

Conquered lands may not be forced to adopt the religion by the Emperor but most quickly convert when faced with the priests of Zoroaster. Neither god or trickster has champions in the way of the Greek pantheon.
